0025 Locations

It is important to understand where assets are located to ensure they are properly protected and comply with data sovereignty laws. The open metadata model allows location information to be captured at many levels of granularity.


The NestedLocation relationship allows hierarchical groupings of locations to be represented. Notice that locations can be organized into multiple hierarchies.

The AdjacentLocation relationship links locations that touch one another.

The notion of a location is variable and the classifications FixedLocation, SecureLocation and CyberLocation help to clarify the nature of the location.
